"These Boots Are Made For Stomping" is the first psytrance mp3 compilation on Postunder Records. We wanted to put together such a comp for quite some time, and finally - here it is. Ten stomping psytrance track by some well known, and some up and coming psy acts. This compilation touches a bit of every genre in psy, starting off with some suomi and goa sounds, moving forward with some proggy yet heavy tunes, and then getting really dark and nightimeish before letting go just a bit towards the last two tracks.

Jikenteki starts us off with a fun, melodic suomi style tune, very uplifting and great vibe. The second track by ProSect is a very punchy and well crafted oldschool goa and prog hybrid. Great sound and composition as well as a special formant melody make this one of the best tunes on this comp. Swan X-1 give us a dark melodic goa track. Metalish melodies and sounds, eerie atmospheres and oldschool melodies in this one. Spacer's track is a funky and bouncy tune before we move on to the dark stuff starting with Electrypnose on track number five. Typical Electrypnose quirky sounds with a nice hard driving bassline, noisy lead lines and a dark, haunting vibe. Guinea Pigs get already very hardcore with intenste psychedelic sounds and arrangment, cool samples and groovy beat - perfect for a nightime set. Track number seven by Faxi Nadu features Faxi's b movie samples, among a mad mix of psychedelic sounds. A fast track with many twists and turns. An often changing yet driving bassline as well as a tempo builddown make this track unique. Next comes a powerful, fullon/dark track from Cybernetika. This one is pure digging for the first five minutes, with a pounding bassline among a fat groove and psy sounds. After the fifth minute very nice pads sweep in making this track both a headbobber and an emotional tune. Damagez comes in on track number nine to ease us out from the tention in the previous tracks. A melodic bassline with fun evolving sounds and leads and a smart arrangement keep us grooving. Mandala Echos closes out this compilation with a hypnotic tech trance, somewhat tribal track, based around the bass and drums with german techno type melodies.
